Does anyone know how th transfer vintage needlework designs and embroidery them? I do not have a software to convert them, I just thought there may be a trick to it that I do not know about.
Appreciate it.

Trace lightly and free motion them. If you are using whitework and have embroidery stitches on your machine, use a single stitch that is the closest.
If you are sewing by hand, there is some transfer paper that does wash out.
